Is it appropriate to ask an LGBT judge to recuse him- or herself from a marriage-equality case?

“No. My father’s a judge in New Jersey. Nobody would ask him to recuse himself from a case because he’s straight. The same should be true for a gay judge. [A judge’s] sexual orientation shouldn’t enter the picture. Judges should be able to separate their professional life from their personal life.”
